Now You See Me: Visual Rehabilitation in Pediatrics

  • This seminar is designed to help professionals understand common visual problems in children, what children are seeing, why they are seeing it, and how to fix these visual challenges. Combining research-based lecture and interactive labs, this course provides attendees the proper tools to identify and treat visual neglect, cross dominance, eye teaming, visual processing, and scotopic sensitivity. Correcting these issues ultimately improves the child's quality of life, as reading, handwriting, and playing are enhanced. Grounded in evidence-based information, this seminar offers comprehensive coverage of established techniques that can be implemented immediately and effectively in therapy, at home, and in the classroom.
